Preparation
In order for a lasting quality finish, we invest time in ensuring that we spend time preparing the surfaces, be it walls, ceilings, spindles, door frames, skirting boards and cornices to provide a lasting quality finish. In some instances, walls may need to be bleached to ensure that fungal growth or mould are eradicated. These may then be power washed or steam cleaned.

We use dust sheets to cover areas to protect areas from damage. Any areas that need masking are done so from the outset. We use a variety of differing masking tapes with differing grip levels, masking paper, plastic sheeting and self-adhesive films to ensure that the paint coatings are only applied to the surfaces where required.

Surface cleaning
It is important that sticky surfaces are cleared so that the paint can be applied evenly. All surfaces need to be prepared free from grease, grime and dirt before painting can commence. We spend time preparing these area as well as door handles, architraves, handrails, bannisters, spindles and hand level surfaces.

Sanding
There are two main benefits of sanding, firstly for a smooth surface by removing imperfections. Secondly, sanding allows a smooth surface to be achieved and this in turn gives the paint coating something to stick to. We use dust extractor sanders to ensure that we minimise the amount of dust dispersed into the air.

Priming
All bare surfaces need to be primed. If the plaster is new a mist coat needs to be applied by thinning the emulsion paint. This allows the paint to soak into the plaster and create a bond for the paint to be applied to the surface. Without a bond, the paint would sit on the surface and result in paint failing quickly. Woodwork needs to have any knots to be treated before they can be primed otherwise they will bleed through the top coat.

Filling
Dents, holes, cracks, splits and shakes need to be filled with a variety of products including powder filers, joining fillers, caulk for cracks and light weight fillers for smaller areas of imperfections.
